I just kegged two brews! Before I did, I took a part the beer side ball lock connectors to clean them, and I think I heard a piece fall out when I disassembled one. I couldn't find anything, so I thought maybe it was nothing, but lo and behold, when I put it back together and tried to connect it to my keg, it wouldn't connect! I took it off and looked at it, and the center pin was crooked:
These are the two internal parts:
Does anyone have any idea what piece I could be missing? I'm thinking it's maybe a hollow cylinder to hold the post straight, or maybe another little peg or something that goes between them. Oh, and I have the spring for this, but it's not in the second photo.
I tried googling to find an image of what the internal structure is supposed to look like, but I couldn't find anything. Any ideas, or links to diagrams? Thanks.
